The Friends of Pisgah met at the Horseshoe Road Trailhead in Chesterfield Saturday, May 13th, 2017 at 10:00 am to work on the upcoming 10K race loop (mostly Reservoir, North Ponds and Lily Pond Trails). Numerous trees and branches across the trails were removed and paths opened for water to drain off the trails.

We broke up into 3 groups.  Doug Favreau, Iva Woods and Sherisa Sterling cleared the northern section of South Woods Trail, the Habitat Trail and Lily Pond Trail.  Jon Knickerbocker, John Herrick and Park Manager Whip Newell cut tree on the south end of Lily Pond Trail.  Matt Edson, Jack Kondos and John Hudachek cleaned the Reservoir Trail down to North Ponds Trail. The intersection of North Ponds Trail and the Reservoir Trail was cleared and new signs made by Whip installed.  Much pooled water was drained.

The black flies were fierce at the trailhead, but diminished in the park interior.  We were all done and on our way home by 2:30.
